All smiles in Český Krumlov , Czech Republic

Welcome and thanks for stopping by! My name is Tara and I am a 30 something freelance writer, videographer, motivator and wine drinker from Toronto Canada.  I am currently loving life by traveling the world, drinking wine, seeking adventure, helping people and learning new things.  I motivate people to live a life that they love by helping them discover their passions. Mine are Love, Wine & Sunshine Let me support you in discovering and living yours. You are unique and your life should be too.



Loving life in Tofino, British Columbia


Most people are not living a life that they love and that hurts my heart. We are all incredibly unique little snowflakes, just trying to find our way in this crazy world. It is impossible to think that we would all be blissful with the same definition of happiness, but society makes us feel like we should. I am on a crusade to stop this mentality! We all need to follow our own hearts to happiness. To create new paths, blaze trails, dance to our own beat and never worry about fitting into someone else’s mold. I motivate and educate and support people on how to create a life they love by building it out of their passions.


Drinking wine at The Asses Ears Wilderness Lodge in Australia


This is not an easy journey but I have found that drinking good wine along the way helps the navigation. I am WSET certified and wine is one of my greatest passions I love learning about wine, visiting vineyards and enjoying all of the delicious varieties this world has to offer. I find that many wine “experts” Talk about win in pretentious jargon that most of us don’t understand. What does it mean when a wine has nice legs, should I be jealous? Why are they saying it has aromas of cut grass, is that suppose to be a good thing? I just want to know if it taste good! I talk about wine in a real everyday language and showcase which life moments it pairs well with.

Chasing sunshine at the top of the Tablelands in Gros Morne National Park, Newfoundland


My soul is solar powered. I need to be constantly chasing the sun. Exploring new places, experiencing unique adventures and meeting new people.  I am striving to do this in an ethical and sustainable way that enhances this amazing planet we live on. I live by the philosophy that to whom much is given, much is expected. I have been given a great deal in life so I want to give back tenfold. I believe that we should approach travel as if we were a guest in someone’s home, be gracious that you are allowed in and if you can, leave a gift of gratitude. My hope is to inspire you to chase the sun in a sustainable way, even if in your own community or back yard.
